About Suzanne House 

Suzanne House provides specialised individual respite care for children with life-limiting conditions and complex medical needs in a small homelike environment, allowing families to have a well-deserved break, happy in the knowledge that their child is being cared for in a home away from home.

Our children are aged between 1-18 are nonverbal, non-ambulant, are fed via feeding tubes, have severe/profound intellectual disabilities and many other medical conditions that sees them requiring 24 hour nursing support.

In Suzanne house we pride ourselves on offering respite that meets the needs of all of our children while allowing them to have fun and make happy memories on each of their visits.

We strive to make the very happiest of memories for the short time we have them with us.

The Benefits of a Sensory Garden

A sensory garden is designed with the purpose of stimulating and engaging the five basic senses of sight, smell, sound, touch, and taste. This stimulation occurs courtesy of plants and the use of materials, equipment, and other accessories.

While in the garden, the children will be encouraged to touch, smell and taste interacting with environment around them. These types of gardens are popular with, and beneficial to, children who have intellectual disabilities, sensory processing issues, and other complex medical needs.

For individuals who tend to be under-reactive to stimuli, the garden is a great way to stimulate the senses. One child may run their hand through water and receive a calming sensory input, while another child may receive an awakening and energy sensory input.

A sensory garden is a calming place and a gentle way to stimulate the senses, where our children with complex medical needs, can feel safe and comfortable in exploring their senses without feeling overwhelmed by them.
